Move forward in your faith!
Just as we move from infant to toddler and from adolescent to adult, Jesus also wants us to be moving and maturing spiritually. In fact, it’s hard to be a follower of Jesus if we’re not moving forward in our faith. Pathways is our intentional plan to help your personal growth in faith. Following Jesus is not about arriving at a destination, rather it is about a lifelong journey. Throughout our lives we continue to take steps along the way, moving forward in directions that ultimately lead us closer to being holy and more like Jesus.
God has a plan and purpose for each of us. Disciples seek to understand God’s plan for their lives as they are continually being shaped into the likeness of Jesus. As we mature in faith, we seek to make ourselves more open to God’s grace and more aware of God’s presence in our lives.
Pathways is intended to help people become and grow as Disciples of Christ. It is designed to draw you closer in your relationship to Jesus and encourage you in your service to Jesus, as you take eight meaningful steps. Don’t treat the steps as a legalistic checklist! Consider them opportunities to grow in your faith because God loves you too much to leave you in the same place spiritually!
Here at Country Club United Methodist Church, Pathways provides opportunities, direction, and resources to help anyone discover and grow in faith according to our calling to make new disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.
